by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Jose Quintana will get the start Friday as the White Sox open the second half against the Astros, reports CSNChicago.com. After that, it's unclear what the rotation will be.

Manager Robin Ventura said he'll wait to see what Chris Sale does in the All-Star Game before lining up the rest of the rotation, which includes John Danks, Hector Noesi and Scott Carroll. Ventura said he might break up Noesi and Carroll because they have pitched in consecutive starts three straight times.

Jacob deGrom cruises to third win Sunday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom received plenty of run support Sunday against the Marlins, but he pitched pretty well regardless during a 9-1 win. He allowed one run on five hits and two walks, while striking out eight in seven innings.

deGrom (3-5) allowed just one walk and one single through three scoreless innings to begin the game. Though, he ran into some trouble in the fourth inning. After retiring the first two batters, Casey McGehee singled, Garrett Jones doubled and Marcell Ozuna gave the Marlins their only run on an infield single. deGrom stranded two runners, however, by striking out Ed Lucas for the final out in the fourth inning.

Following Ozuna's RBI single, deGrom allowed just a single and walk over the final 11 batters he faced. It was his second straight win. deGrom hasn't allowed more than three runs in five straight starts. He has at least eight strikeouts in his last three starts.

The Mets have not yet announced when deGrom will make his first start in the second half because they are waiting on the status of Jonathon Niese (shoulder) before finalizing their rotation plans.
